I just got off of Facebook with a few of my Masinick cousins, who live along Lake Huron, perhaps 70-80 miles north of where I live in Clinton Township, Michigan. One of them lives in Lexington and a few of them live where they grew up in Port Sanilac; it's a small harbor town on Lake Huron, and they have a harbor refuge there where boats can dock; it has a long breakwall to protect the harbor from storms. On Tuesday, it was quite a scene, with 40-50 MPH winds whipping up Lake Huron with waves 10-15 feet high; perhaps not what New York Harbor faced, but it was big enough; they had many pine trees knocked down, power out, and various issues on a much smaller scale than NYC. Because it is a small town and because it was not in the eye of a hurricane, it did not have anywhere near as serious damage, but I do believe that the storm from Canada and the remains of Sandy intersected out there along the banks of Lake Huron; I heard a similar thing happened near Cleveland. Perhaps we'll here more stories like this in days ahead.
I have a friend in Utica, NY, which is west of Albany, the state capital. Albany is along the Hudson River, 3-4 hours north of NYC. Utica is less than an hour west of Albany. While not on the hurricane path, it was directly on the remains of the cyclone path; here it is, early Friday morning and I still have not heard from this friend.
I continue to pray for the millions of people still affected by the damage caused by the incredibly wide and long path of this storm!Brian Masinick
